VERY cool.

The Poni-Tails did not have a stellar career, their biggest hit -- "Born Too Late" -- having come and gone before they met Elvis in 1959. You can find it on a ton of compilations:

I love reading how they got to visit Elvis through "a friend of ours, Cliff Cleague [sic], who knew Elvis' traveling companion, Lamar Fisk [sic] ..."

That said, who wouldn't love to hear Elvis' solo guitar version of "Good Golly Miss Molly"?

Lucky gals.
